an explanation of the value of energy abundance. we should aim to use our energy more wisely but that is not a substitute for production or four measures that will increase the reliability of our systems and supplies. second, this notion of affordability -- the direct cost of energy affects the cost of everything. everything we do. there is nothing else that impact our economy so directly as energy. whether it is individuals that are struggling to fill up their gas tanks, pay their electric bills, whether it is business leaders making decisions on investments based on the cost of power server farms or smelters, we recognize lower cost is better and that's what everybody is seeking. there are those who would have you believe that the best way to reduce energy's direct cost is simply to raise the direct cost so that we discourage energy use. my friends, this is a self- defeating policy. lowering the direct cost of energy is key to helping the u.s. economy recover and prosper. absolutely keep. next is clean. as we attempt to minimize indirect costs by driving up these prices, i

be released. yet 83% of americans said they supported the president's use of drone strikes. i'm wondering is there any public pressure to be more transparent? is that going to happen now? >> that's really interesting. i mean, you cited that poll, 83% of folks agree with the drone program, its use at least overseas. there's a difference if this is used on our soil here, certainly no backing for that among americans, but so far you haven't seen the outcry of a public outcry in terms of this program being used to target americans overseas. i think this is the first big public airing of this issue that we've seen. we'll see obviously brennan take it up today and perhaps after that you'll have americans raising some concern, but so far there has been bipartisan concern i think on the hill. it hasn't extended to the american public, and even in some ways you have had a situation here where republicans have been the fiercest supporters of this program. some folks saying what about democrats also being in the president's corner if this was bush doing the same thing? would they have had a differen
in the u.s. capitol, and like all tourists, the very first thing i did when i came to washington, d.c. was to take a tour of the national mall. but when i got there i noticed something. if you just came to washington, d.c., and just went to the national, you almost believe african-americans never lived in the city. i went from one end of the mall to the other from the capitol all the way down to the lincoln memorial looking for the african-american history of washington, d.c.. and i could barely find anything. i said to myself that can't be true. i know there's african-american history in the city. it has to be african-american history of the national mall. maybe no one has bothered to sit and find out what it is and that's how this book came about. starting in the u.s. capitol, i needed my goal to find out what the african-american history of the national mall and this book is the result. i'm going to take a few minutes here today to talk about some of the things i discovered not only about the national mall, but about washington, d.c. as a city. some things i open interest you and

said. but it is a clear path toward legal status. for those who are already in the u.s. working and paying taxes. it's a process for family reunification. it's a workable employment verification system with penalties for employers who knowingly hire people who are not in status. it is a reasonable enforcement, but i just want to say this and i want to invite congressman polis to react. we put about $18 billion into border stuff so far. i mean, one of the real things about comprehensive immigration reform is we hear people talk about the border, the border, the border. president obama has done tons on the border. for some of us too much. but the border issue is not the problem. the real problem is the other part. i yield to the gentleman from colorado to see if you have any thoughts about this matter. mr. polis: you know, another thing that's important for americans to understand about how 11 million people got here without paperwork and how this continues to occur is that more than half, more than half of the population that lives and works here illegally didn't sneak across a b
hit, maybe there would be enough pressure to begin to engage with to us try to solve some problems like the sequester. host: you call it a bipartisan agreement, sequester. right? the speaker came to the floor yesterday -- guest: what did he say? host: he kept referring to it as the president's sequester. guest: i say -- i'm talking about the fact that where did the sequester come from ultimately? it comes from the budget control act, right? and the speaker is more correct literally than i was because the idea for the sequester in the budget control act came from where? the white house. host: you voted for it, though, right? guest: no. host: it was approved. guest: it was approved. in a bipartisan manner. republicans and democrats. and the speaker supported it. but the speaker is correct. i stand corrected by the speaker. john boehner. maybe he'll say something later on. he is correct, the actual idea of the sequester itself came from president obama and the white house. host: so on twitter, we don't have a spending problem -- 7 >> our video library at c-span.org. the u.s. house has
already started to affect business decisions. so we've been reminded that while it's critical for us to cut wasteful spending, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep, indiscriminate cuts to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs, and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks who are out there still looking for work. and the good news is this doesn't have to happen. for all the drama and disagreements that we've had over the past few years, democrats and republicans have still been able to come together and cut the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion through a mix of spending cuts and higher rates on taxes for the wealthy. a balanced approach has achieved more than $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. that's more than halfway towards the $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists and elected officials from both parties believe is required to stabilize our debt. so we've made progress. and i still believe that we can finish the job with a balanced mix of spend
